Lexington Man Stabbed to Death, Girlfriend Charged With Murder

More Video...

Lexington Police are conducting a homicide investigation. Officers found a man laying outside a trailer in the Eastland Trailer Park early Thursday morning.

They say he was stabbed inside another trailer and somehow managed to get outside. Officers tell us the man made it down the road before collapsing in a yard.

Police say 39 year-old Timothy Roseberry was transported to UK Hospital, where he later died. His girlfriend, 32-year old Dana Gilliam, has since been charged with his murder.

Gilliam's family says Roseberry physically abused her for years, and the stabbing was in self defense. Roseberry's family agrees there was a history of violence in the couple's rocky relationship, but say both Gilliam and Roseberry were abusive toward eachother. In fact, the victim's family tells 27NEWFIRST Gilliam threatened to kill Roseberry at a family reunion less than a week before he was found dead.

Gilliam's arraignment is set for Friday morning in Fayette County court.

    does anyone know dana's mental stability? It had been years since I had talked to Dana...she was a very sweet girl. I don't think her drug history was before the documented abuse.

    First of all they were married! A good friend of mine performed the ceremony. I don't know what happened to the paperwork. This could be another legal battle. Were they? Weren't they? A legal pastor married them. Let the courts work it out. It is bad enought a girlfriend threatens to kill her boyfriend, but even worse when a wife threatens to kill her husbadn. The truth will come out, and the truth is she was more abusive to him. 100's of witnesses will testify to that! If she was so afraid of him, why did she harrassingly call him over and over for him to come home the night she stabbed him? I see set up!!

    You are right!!! The story will come out!! I don't know why everyone keeps saying he broke in on her. He was away like the order requested. She called him numerous times that day. ALL day long!! She would not stop calling him, until he came home!! PHONE RECORDS WILL SHOW THIS!!! Now STOP saying he broke in!! Get the sory right!!!

    To Sissy in London: Girlfriend, do you have a spellcheck? I know you were fired up over Joey's comments, but grab a dictionary! As far as the woman looking tired, sure she does, she's on drugs! Bird of a feather, flock together! Trouble attracts trouble! Just another example of the importance of a good education!!

    Again Many are Stating about Look at her how tired she looks ... Whats he put her thru Blah Blah ... Well First off Drugs (Crack ) Will do this to you as well... Dana & Tim both were Heavy Users and Chasers.. She is no better than him .. If you mix drugs and acohol and cant get along its going to lead to altercations So I dont think its right to lay Blame On the Victim of what he did to her .. When there is drugs and acohol involved Its easy to provoke one .. NOONE IS PERFECT when on drugs and acohol...I know Personally Tim got out and Sold Things on the Street to support their Habit His and Hers and Who knows what She did to get it if anything Possibly Expected Tim to keep it up Because He was a Hustler .. So People Lets get off the BS about what he put her thru she did her part BELIEVE THAT .. and there is such thing as Abuse on men as well .. and thats coming from a Female yes Im Female No male... But Point Is A Life has been taken someones Child, Brother, Family Member etc has been taken and Gave her NO RIGHT ......... why didnt she just call the law and have Him put out Or the others That were in the HOme why didnt they Put him out or call the law and have him arrested and removed NOT STABBED AND MURDERED There was NO RIGHT She is as much at fault as I said and her rings around the eyes .. sad .... Etc is from the Crack Cocaine, acohol and whatever else that has aged her and makes her look so Tired not from abuse Coming from SOMEONE WHO KNOWS PERSONALLY... Im not a drug user Cant stand it ....... want no part of it or anyone who does But I Do feel sorry for those who get hooked on it because Ive seen what it can do to people.. DESTROY THEIR LIVES IT IS A DEVIL DRUG .... but as long as There is Dealers there will be Users........ everyone 1 that is taken off the street ... 2 more move in ...
